X SHORE Eelex 8000 Electric Boat
The Swedish X Shore has unveiled its new flagship. Meet the fully electric boat Eelex 8000.
This 100% electrically powered boat has a minimalist design and is made of sustainable materials. Inspired by electrified eels, the knifefish colors make their way onto the ship in shades like light brown, brown, olive green and turquoise. Materials such as flax fibre, recycled plastic and cork significantly reduce the impact of the Eelex on the environment and the noise on board the ship.
The Eelex 8000 is powered by a 225 kilowatt motor and can reach speeds of 30 knots, with a range of 100 nautical miles, or about 185 kilometers. Owners can also sync their Garmin MARQ watch with the X Shore app. This can then not only act as a key, but can also provide information such as distance, speed, battery life, range and warning signals.
X Shore’s new electric boat will be priced at €249,000, and only 400 units will be available for sale.
